Amazon (AMZN) has spent the better part of 2012 beefing up its Prime Instant Video service. During the past year, the company brought the streaming service to the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and a number of gaming consoles such as the Wii U, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Amazon also announced new licensing deals with Warner Brothers, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Paramount Pictures and EPIX, among other, to help it further compete with Netflix (NFLX) and Hulu+. The company announced on Friday that it has come to an agreement with A&E Networks to bring popular shows such as Pawn Stars, Storage Wars and Dance Moms to the service.

“In a year we have more than doubled the Prime Instant Video selection for our Prime members,” said Brad Beale, director of digital video content acquisition for Amazon. “We remain focused on adding TV episodes and movies to Prime Instant Video that we think our customers will enjoy. A+E Networks has some of the most popular shows on television and we know our customers will love streaming the A+E content with Prime Instant Video.”

Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service is now home to more than 33,000 movies and TV episodes that can be streamed instantly to hundreds of compatible devices. Amazon Prime is available for $79 per year and also offers customers free two-day shipping.
